With the Playstation Store I believe you can actually purchase PSN titles from your PC for the PSP (and possibly PS3? I forget). I've googled but I can't quite tell if there's such a service for the Wii U store.
There's a Wii U downloadable title I'd like, as it's on sale, but I don't have a Wii U yet. Is there some way I can purchase the game (even if I have to download it on the title, just "claiming" it would be super) without the console itself?
